The Junior Orthodox Youth (J.O.Y.) is our youth group for children from 7 to 12 years old. JOY is designed to help young people learn more about their Orthodox Faith, get to know their church friends better and grow together in positive ways; and the children do this while having a fun time! JOY meetings are held usually on alternating Fridays during the school year. The JOY meetings include learning activities and games, crafts, snacks and discussion time and actively participate in inter-JOY athletic leagues. A partial list of out activities include:

Rec Night - Kickball, basketball and soccer
Crafts - Tie dye, holiday crafts and baking
Holiday Parties - Halloween and Christmas
